About the Author

Walter grew up in Massachusetts, and attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He was an exchange student in Munich in 1979-80, the year he met his wife, Lisa, who was a graduate student in Switzerland at the time. They married in 1982. Walt considers it the best decision he ever made. He is a baseball fan and a Freemason, and enjoys boardgames and roleplaying games; between those interests and his family, he has a very busy life. Still, he enjoys writing most of all - there's nothing like doing something you love (and getting paid for it.) He qualifys as a recovering programmer (10 years) and also a recovering technical writer (8 years). For the last four years he's been writing full time, which has brought some success and even more satisfaction.

By Daniel H. Setzer on March 10, 2013
Format: Paperback
My tastes in science fiction tend toward what is known as 'hard' scifi. However, once I got over the breech in the laws of physics which allows the hero of the book to transport back in time into the body of a 14th century Templar knight, I really had a good time with the story.

The writing is very clear and almost cinematic in feeling. The author brings alive the sights and smells of the 1300's. It makes for a compelling adventure and I was eager to turn the pages to see what was going to happen next.

Dealing with time travel can be very tricky, but the author handles the back and forth of the overlapping time-lines very well with out getting the reader lost.

There is a wealth of arcane masonic and Templar lore to be had and the medieval sites and cathedrals mentioned in the book are mostly still around to be seen. This book adds a dimension to our enjoyment and appreciation of those monuments.

Format: Hardcover
Ian Graham, an unemployed television interviewer, gets a job offer to do a documentary on the mystery of Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. Ian takes the tour to get a feel for the location. As the guide is talking about the mysterious stone carvings during the tour, Ian starts to hear a humming noise that intensifies as he goes farther. The guide explains that the stones have a meaning but that it has been lost to history.
Not only does Ian hear a humming noise as the guide speaks, he thinks he is hearing his agent and another man talking in the crypts area. He then begins to hear music that no one else seems to hear. As the music swells, he hears the words " truth conquers all" in his head. Fade to black as Ian falls into nothingness.

When Ian awakens, he is but he isn't Ian. If this seems like an enigma, it is. He is Ian in body but not Ian of the 21st century. It seems he has been transported back to the year 1307 as an initiate of the Knights Templar making his way on a pilgrimage. The final destination is a location not to be built for another century or more. He has memory of his other self in the 21st century but also can function in the 14th , just as if he had lived there for years. Because Ian has the sole ability to hear the "healing music" he is a target for those who have it in for the Knights Templar. Ian knows that in approximately 6 weeks the King will give an order to rout out all the Knights Templar and arrest them. In order to save the music for the world, Ian must finish his pilgrimage and return to his own time. Will he be able to finish this dangerous but very important mission? Will it be in time ?

What an absolutely incredible imagination Mr. Hunt has!

I happened across this book at our library, and I plan to be buying myself a copy! It had the same fantastic feel that Dan Brown's books, or the movies National Treasure have, historical fiction filled with so much truth, it's just an imposible to put down read, and something I plan to suggest to all of my friends to read.

When I first looked at the book, I got the impression that it was a so-so read. What I think I discovered is that whoever wrote the reviews I read must not have been musicians. As a musician, I could identify with what was going on, how music can transport a person, if not actually physically or termporally, then at least it can really seem that it does. What this book did was to take me back to a time I know very little about and made me aware of it, to live in it, at least it seemed that way. I loved it.

The book was quite good (confusing at times, but think that was more me than the story line - lol). It was a quick read, and pulled you in.
I would recommend the book to those who like mystery & intrigue. It intertwines discovery of oneself with a mission, breaking the mold of what is normal & know.

I'm a scifi fan, as well as mystery and historical fact/fiction fan. I was intrigued with the time-travel bit, also.

It was very entertaining to read the different sayings and words for things in Scotland (present day idioms) and the seemingly well-researched words and cultural habits in past Europe.

Writing an understandable time-travel novel is very difficult, and although the author makes a valiant attempt, I was simply confused throughout the book. Reconciling the past character with the future character came up lacking. Jumping around with what are dreams/reality/memories/future/present events was frustrating to follow at times. And then all of a sudden, the main character is "back to the future".

I was left feeling like I was missing something. Perhaps the author will write another book about how all those ancient treasures got lost and/or how Rosslyn Chapel came to have the song, tying events together.

I'll read it again in the future some'time', maybe then the story will make better sense.

This is hands down the best Masonic fiction I have had the pleasure to read. The story is accurate historically in many ways, lots of truth and a dash of fiction to make it an excellent and fantastic web. Paul Di Fillipo wrote to me once that "Life is Fantasy" and I agree. When we allow ourselves to imagine we can often manifest the best parts of ourselves in life.

I recommend this book to all Masons and profane alike. It is just one heck of a fun ride and it opens and enlightens the mind.
